Because the UEFI params for Dom0 are located under /hypervisor/uefi node
instead of /chosen. So it needs to check whether it's a Dom0 then search
and parse different node with different params arrays.

So it still needs add another check to firstly parse the fdt to see if
there is "xen,uefi-system-table" under /hypervisor/uefi node, right? I
think it's a bit redundant compared with xen_initial_domain().
